FOUR RUMS TO TRY
Ten to One. It holds aromas of molasses, white pepper and a hint of fresh grass, while tasting notes include that of tropical fruit, citrus and white flowers. Look for it at specialty wine and spirits shops.
Probitas white blended rum. Readily available at package stores, this collaboration between Hampden Estate and Foursquare offers whiffs of vanilla, custard and grass, and sips of apricot, banana and lime zest.
Hampden Estate single Jamaican rum. Aged for eight years, it smells of brûléed custard and tastes like a combination of praline, tobacco and caramel. Find it at specialty wine and spirits shops.
Foursquare 2007 single blended rum. With peanut, toffee and maple on the nose (and roasted coffee, too), it’s like sniffing a bag of Brach’s Maple Nut Goodies candies. Enjoy the taste of milk chocolate, dark cherry and sorghum with each sip. This rum is a rare one, so check with your favorite spirits retailer.
The Slaters are beverage industry veterans and the proprietors of the Expat and the Lark Winespace in Athens.
